BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

Weather played a significant role in 1994. While the last major storm- 
related construction project was completed (the Sandy Beach seawall), snow and 
cold played havoc with the Town's streets and roads as well as the winter main- 
tenance budget. The Town spent $100,000 (more than twice its budget) and had 
to deficit spend to keep the streets clear and safe for travel. The year ended with 
the Christmas Eve storm which disrupted the holidays of many residents due to 
a prolonged power outage. Town officials will work to get Eastern Edison to 
improve their storm response to help prevent a recurrence of the slow restora- 
tion of power in future storms. 

Most of the old Hagerty factory building was demolished in April, and the 
Study Committee, Selectmen, and others have wrestled with the future uses of 
this important parcel. The Selectmen awarded to the Cohasset Maritime Institute, 
Inc. a one-year lease for the boat house to conduct educational and community 
boating programs; meanwhile, the planning effort continues for development of 
the remainder of the parcel. On Government Island, the Cohasset Lightkeepers' 
Corporation completed the reconstruction of that facility, and Bancroft Hall was 
officially dedicated. 

Town Meeting approved theMilliken Field project, and the voters approved 
a debt exclusion in May, so that the bonds will be paid for outside the property

tax limitation. Work commenced on the tennis court component of the project 
in early fall. 

A van jointly purchased with the Town of Hingham under a federal grant 
program_provides accessible transportation to the disabled. It was placed into 
service this spring, and the Town has made other accessibiUty^riprovements to 
make its services more user friendly to those with disabilities. 

Other capital improvement projects figured significantly into this year's 
municipal agenda. Water pressure problems brought the condition of the Town 
water distribution system to the forefront as residents' water usage had to be 
curtailed, and the Town's ability to fight fires was brought into question because 
of insufficient hydrant pressure. Town government responded to citizen con- 
cerns by proposing major system improvements, which Town Meeting approved. 

Also, at the Fall Special Town Meeting, voters approved an Agreement for 
Judgment concerning the Waste Water Treatment Facility which was negotiated 
by the Sewer Commissioners with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a 
related Town-wide sewer study was funded. This will result in major benefits to 
residents in the harbor, hillside, and veterans' project areas of Cohasset. How- 
ever, the costs associated with a proposed new treatment facility will have to 
be absorbed to a greater degree by the sewer users, and the costs will be 
considerable. 

When federally required studies of alternative transportation systems were 
finally filed, citizenry both for and against the proposed commuter railroad line 
brought this issue to the attention of Cohasset residents. A resolution opposing 
the railroad passed by a narrow margin at the October Special Town Meeting. 
The Town Meeting also appropriated funds for a study of the Environmental 
Impact Report which the MBTA will file in 1995. While Selectmen and citizenry 
can comment on the EIR and attempt to influence the decision, the reality is 
that if state officials want train service restored, the Town cannot prevent it 
from happening. On the Selectmen's recommendation, funds were appropriated 
for an analysis of the impact of the railroad on Cohasset. This analysis can be 
used to compel the MBTA to take steps to prevent adverse impacts related to 
pollution, safety, parking, and traffic circulation, just to name a few issues. 

A major step was taken toward solving the long standing cemetery prob- 
lems as the Town approved funding for the beautification and Phase I expansion 
of the Beechwood Cemetery. 

Looking forward to 1995, we see clouds on the fiscal horizon from the 
financial impacts of capital improvement projects, coupled with the higher costs 
associated with the education finance and reform law. The Board of Selectmen 
and other Town officials will continue to reexamine how local services are 
delivered; however, part of the answer to the problem will, hopefully, be a 
greater distribution of income tax, gasoline, and sales tax revenues, as well as 
lottery receipts, to help offset the mandates and higher cost of providing local 
services. Reduction in the level or quality of services is inevitable if additional 
revenue is not forthcoming from either the state or our own local property taxes.

Health (collectively, "Applicable Health Regulations"), but only under the cir- 
cumstances, and subject to the limitations, set forth in this Section 9.5.9. No 
such construction shall be undertaken without a building permit from the Build- 

-61 - 



ing Inspector, who shall not issue a permit for the construction of such subsurface 
sewage disposal system unless the application therefor shall be accompanied by a 
written statement from the Health Agent for the Town of Cohasset certifying to 
the following. 

9.5.9.1 That the proposed subsurface sewage disposal system is in replace- 
ment of an existing cesspool or an existing subsurface disposal system which has 
failed or which must be replaced pursuant to the Applicable Health Regulations; 

9.5.9.2 The proposed subsurface sewage disposal system is of the mini- 
mum size required by Applicable Health Regulations to serve the dwelling being 
served by the existing cesspool or subsurface disposal system as such dwelling 
existed at the time that replacement of the cesspool or subsurface disposal 
system was mandated by Applicable Health Regulations, or by the failed existing 
subsurface disposal system as such dwelling existed at the time of such failure,

ment of such dwelling; and"

percolation rate standards, and other requirements of Applicable Health Regula- 
tions and (ii) is not occupied by any existing building. Without limiting the 
generality of the foregoing, and alternative location shall not be deemed infeasible 
because it requires the disturbance or destruction of driveways, walkways, fences, 
walls, or landscaping.

REPORT OF THE TOWN ARCHIVIST 

The primary role of Cohasset's Town Archive vault at Town Hall is to 
preserve the permanent public records of the municipal offices, boards and com- 
mittees located at the Town's municipal office building. Under State law, both 
historical and modern permanent public records are required to be stored in 
approved fireproof and environmentally regulated vaults located at the site of 
the offices served by the vaults. During 1994 numerous permanent office records 
were added to the archive vault, being properly shelved by provenance and listed 
in the inventory book of vault material. This year the shelving system in the 
cellar vault was revised to provide more space for future records. Today's com- 
puter generated standard form public records issued by several offices, usually 
added to the vault each year, have become more space-consuming than those of 
the past, and conservation of remaining shelf space will be essential for the 
present vaults to remain usable in future years. The Town's most historical 
records, dating to the first book of Parish and Precinct records of 1717, are 
additionally protected by placement in steel cabinets within the vaults, and are 
available to researchers. 

Modern and historical permanent public records are projected by the 
Public Records laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and continuing 
efforts are made to conform to the requirements of those laws. 

Respectfully submitted, 

David H. Wadsworth 
Town Archivist 



REPORT OF THE BYLAW COMMITTEE 

The Bylaw Committee has reviewed those articles proposed for each Town 
Meeting which involve changes in or additions to the Town Bylaws to assure that 
they are in conformity with existent Bylaws in style and proper placement in the 
text. The Committee has also reviewed such articles passed by Town Meeting 
and accepted by the Attorney General and has directed that these changes be 
incorporated in copies of the Bylaws in the office of the Town Clerk. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary E. Gainor, Chairman 

W. Roger Nast 

Louis F. Eaton, Jr. 

Richard A. Henderson, Town Counsel 

( ex officio ) 

Marion L. Douglas, Town Clerk

TOWN MODERATOR 

Nowhere was the effectiveness of the enhanced and open communication 
between various Town Boards and Committees felt more strongly than at 
Cohasset's largest ever Town Meeting held in October. As a result of extensive 
dialogue, cooperation and sharing of information between Moderator, Commit- 
tee and Board representatives and Chairpersons, and the joint efforts of many 
citizens in providing meaningful input on issues prior to the Meeting, excessive 
dissension and disruption was avoided, and most parties involved in what could 
have been a contentious, divisive and unruly forum left at the conclusion of the 
Town Meeting with a feeling that fair play and respect prevailed at all times 
throughout the two evenings. 

My membership in the Massachusetts Moderators' Association is proving to 
be a valuable resource. Many helpful hints can be learned from experienced, 
dedicated Moderators from across the state. It is helpful for there to be a 
Cohasset presence within this distinguished organization. 

Many residents have taken the time to call me to express approval and 
thanks for the insert to the Warrant which I developed, containing all relevant 
bylaw detail, the text of the general Town Meeting Bylaw and existing bylaws 
subject to change by Town Meeting action. Hopefully, this will become a perma- 
nent addition to future Warrants. As in the past, simplification of the Town 
Meeting process remains a high priority to me. It is one of several means that 
ensure widespread participation from a diverse group of residents. 

One thing that always "keeps 'em coming" is speeding things up! At the 
next Town Meeting, it is hoped the addition of microphones at both the Select- 
men and Advisory tables will save time, since Board members will not have to 
repeatedly walk to the one central microphone bank. Again, my sincere thanks 
to all who spoke at the Town Meeting for keeping statements brief and relevant. 

Troika functioned smoothly this year. Vacancies were advertised, and we 
filled a number of important positions with exceptionally well qualified, highly 
motivated Cohasset residents. 

In the upcoming year, it is my intention to work with the Legislative Com- 
mittee at the Massachusetts Moderators' Association to draft a proposal for 
legislative reform designed to tighten up and clarify loose, ambiguous language 
presently used in laws governing the conduct of Town Meeting and the powers 
and duties of Town Moderators. 

As always, I encourage comments and suggestions from EVERYONE 
interested in making Cohasset Town Government a statewide model for towns of 
similar population and socioeconomic make-up. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George L. Marlette 
Town Moderator

REPORT OF THE ADVISORY BOARD 

The Town of Cohasset has one seat on the 28-Town Norfolk County 
Advisory Board (appropriating authority similar to combination of Town 
Finance Committee and Town Meeting), with a 1.88 weighted vote (based upon 
share of equalized valuation). By general statute, a member of the Board of 
Selectmen represents a Town. Selectmen Merle S. Brown represented Cohasset 
during 1994. 

The County Advisory Board meets monthly during the annual budget 
review and otherwise quarterly for consideration of budgetary transfers or 
supplements. County appropriations are made subject to such regular reviews, 
in order to make timely budgetary adjustments and reduce the likelihood of 
crises. In calendar 1994, the Norfolk County Advisory Board met six times 
during annual review and twice in later quarterly meetings. 

March 1994 meeting (at Respiratory Hospital in Braintree) voted '94 
appropriation transfers; preliminary '95 revenue estimates; and heard a briefing 
on hospital finances. April 1994 meeting (at Agricultural School in Walpole) 
voted '94 appropriation transfers; and held hearings on '95 requests by Registry 
of Deeds, County Court Buildings and County Corrections. May 1994 meeting 
(Agricultural School) voted a year-end '94 Supplementary Appropriation; and 
held hearings on '95 requests by Wollaston Recreational Facility, Engineering 
Department and Agricultural High School. June 1 meeting (Agricultural School) 
of Budget Committee held hearing on remaining '95 budget requests and voted 
recommendations to full Advisory Board. June 8 meeting (Agricultural School) 
of full Advisory Board voted annual '95 Appropriation; approved Hospital's 
annual financial plan; and elected new officers for Fiscal '95. June 29 special 
meeting (at New Jail Facility on Route 1 28 in Dedham) voted year-end transfers 
for Corrections Department. 

September 1994 quarterly meeting (Agricultural School) voted revenue 
adjustments for and transfers within the '95 Appropriation, including Capital 
Improvement Fund for Agricultural School. December 1994 quarterly meeting 
(Respiratory Hospital) voted additional revenue adjustments and supplementary 
spending authority in Fiscal 1995 County Appropriation; appointed three out- 
side trustees to Massachusetts Respiratory Hospital for six-year terms; and 
heard joint briefing with hospital trustees on the future of the respiratory 
hospital. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John F. Dacey, Coordinator

REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 

The Personnel Committee completed negotiations with the Konohasset 
Clerical and Custodial Association which provided for raises of 0% in Fiscal Year 
1992, 2% in Fiscal Year 1993, and 3-1/2% in Fiscal Years 1994 and 1995. This 
was the first contract with the newly formed union. All contracts with the Fire 
Department, Police Department and Paul Pratt Memorial Library had been 
settled for the same general salary increases in previous years. 

All four union contracts expire in June of 1995, and new bargaining 
discussions are under way. 

Non-union Town employees were granted the same salary increases. 

The primary project outside of union negotiations for the committee in 
1995 is to make a comprehensive review of job descriptions. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Peter F. Pacetti, Chairman 

John M. Seavey

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE TO SURVEY THE STRUCTURE 
AND FUNCTION OF TOWN GOVERNMENT 

The purpose of this Committee is to survey the structure and function of 
Town government, its officers, departments and boards and, from time to time, 
report its findings and recommendations to Town Meeting. The Committee held 
meetings on a regular basis this past year and occasionally met, individually and 
collectively, with members of other committees, Town officials and interested 
citizens. 

During 1994 the Committee considered and made recommendations to the 
responsible parties on a wide variety of issues, including ambulance collections, 
the Computer Advisory Committee, a potential agent for the Conservation Com- 
mission, and a change of date for the Town Election (to save the cost of issuing 
a second warrant). Several possibilities for regionalization were raised, and some 
of the following presently are being explored: 911 service, a consolidated lock- 
up, an animal pound, and shared capital equipment. 

The Committee welcomed new members Diana Kornet, William Lean and 
Ann Swanborg, and honored former member Jim Whelan, recently deceased, for 
his many contributions during his term. Chairman Roy Fitzsimmons declined 
reappointment at the end of his term in June, and Wilson Pile was elected Chair- 
man for the current year. Stacey Weaver was elected Secretary to succeed Wilson 
Pilp 



112- 



The Board of Selectmen liaison requested that the Committee investigate 
the concept of a commission to create and administer a policy for investment of 
Town funds. This issue and the consideration of a Town Department of Public 
Works are part of the Committee's agenda for 1995. We remain concerned that 
the Department of Revenue data continues to project an increasing gap between 
Town revenues and expenditures, and we are committed to investigating and 
supporting structural changes that promote economies, without reducing services 
to a level unacceptable to the Town. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Wilson N. Pile, Chairman 

Stacey V. Weaver, Secretary 

Diana D. Kornet 

William Lean, Jr. 

Louis Simeone 

Ann P. Swanborg

BOARD OF ASSESSORS 

The real estate market has shown sustained growth in residential sales for 
1994, while property values have remained constant in the Town of Cohasset. 

The past year has brought many changes to our office and will carry 
through in 1996 with the first in-house revaluation program. The Assessors have 
guided the department through a two-phase process with the computerization of 
the appraisal function and the education of the office staff. 

This past year has also brought a new Assistant Assessor/ Appraiser, Cheryl 
Pooler. With her professionalism and technical knowledge in assessing, the Board 
is confident she can carry us through the 1966 revaluation. 

The Assessors present the following value information for all taxable 
property in Cohasset: 

Type of Property Assessed Value 



Residential $718,310,900 

Commercial 58,582,900 

Industrial 4,592,800 

Personal Property 10,435 ,049 



The fiscal 1995 Tax Rate was set at $14.32. 



Respectfully submitted, 



James W. Lagrotteria, Chairman 

Michael C.Patrolia 

Ross W. Rosano

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

The Conservation Commission is pleased to note that in 1994 Associate 
Members Robin Grinnell and Edward Graham were appointed to fill vacancies 
on the Commission. Diligent time spent as associates enabled them to assume 
their jobs with ease. Our newest associates are Susan Cope, a planner, and James 
Dedes, an engineer. We are grateful for the technical and practical assistance they 
have brought to our meetings. 

In 1994 the Conservation Commission continued to see an increase in 
filings by residents seeking permits and determinations as is required by the 
State's Wetland Protection Act and the Town's non-zoning Wetlands Bylaw. A 
greater awareness of the role environmental issues play in projects and a good 
working relationship with the Building Inspector and the Board of Health were 
all factors. 

In addition to reviewing applications and conducting hearings, the Conser- 
vation Commission provided on-going assistance to the independent groups 
responsible for improvements to the track, field and tennis courts at the High 
School and Milliken Field. We continued to work with other town committees 



- 159 



on the location of a DPW garage, finding additional cemetery space, acquisition 
and use of the Hagerty property, and dealing with mosquito control issues. We 
also provided guidance to residents concerned about the midge infestation on 
Straits Pond, the problems associated with algae growth in Little Harbor, and 
the cleanup of Bound Brook. 

In March, the Commission issued a Notice of Violation to Cohasset 
Heights Ltd. landfill and began a series of investigative hearings and inspections 
in an effort to remedy alteration of the wetlands adjacent to the landfill and 
contamination of the groundwater. 

During the summer, Associate Member Susan Cope prepared a Map of 
Cohasset's Open Space. The project was initiated by the Massachusetts Execu- 
tive Office of Environmental Affairs in an effort to encourage cities and towns 
to participate in a statewide GIS (Geographic Information System). The map, 
which identified all open and recreation space, will be a valuable resource in 
creating an open space plan for Cohasset. This, in turn, can generate funding 
from outside the community for protection of our natural resources. We thank 
Sue and the townspeople that she relied on for information in completing this 
project. 

The Commission expects that this will be the first of several projects 
undertaken as part of an overall environmental planning and management effort. 
As environmental leaders of the community, the Conservation Commission 
continues to see the important role that education, land acquisition, planning 
and management can play, in addition to regulation, as a means of protecting the 
many valuable natural resources that we have in Cohasset.

BOARD OF HEALTH 

In 1994 Alix White was elected to the Board defeating Robert V. 
Davenport. William E. Baird, P.E./LSP was re-elected as Chairman and Thomas 
C. Cook, P.E. was elected Clerk. Joseph R. Godzik, VMD continued as Health 
Agent, and Carol Oteri-Puffer as Administrative Secretary. 

Testing for lead in the drinking water continued at the schools. Replace- 
ment of fixtures, valves, pipes, etc. has continued, but has not solved the prob- 
lem in all cases. Those water fountains containing high levels are shut off and are 
not being used. Replacement of plumbing continues. 

Shaw's Supermarkets, the owner of Cushing Plaza, has performed some 
testing to support the design of a new septic system. It is anticipated that a 
design will be presented and approved in 1995. 

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection has passed 
new regulations pertaining to subsurface sewage disposal (Title 5) which go into 
effect on March 31, 1995. The regulations require a thorough inspection of 
septic systems at the time of real property transfer. Since it is estimated that 
about 50% of the septic systems in Cohasset will not meet the standards for pro- 
tecting the public health and the environment, a significant financial impact will 
be felt by many residents who are selling their homes and who will be required 
to upgrade their existing septic systems. 

Cohasset Heights Ltd. Landfill had two Final Environmental Impact 
Reports rejected by the Executive Office of Environmental Affairs for a fifteen- 
acre expansion. Review of the financial assurances and operations of the existing 
landfill continues. 

Closure of the Town's Cedar Street Landfill continues to progress. The 
Town received approval from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental 
Protection to receive clay for capping the landfill from the Central Artery 
Project. Work is being done to complete the required Comprehensive Site 
Assessment (CSA). The final plan to cap the landfill and the CSA should be filed 
with the state in the spring of 1995. 

Between 150 to 175 persons participated in the Annual Household Hazard- 
ous Collection Day. 

The Board has worked with the South Shore Boards of Health Collabora- 
tive in developing tobacco control programs. In October awards were given to 
the following restaurants which are completely non-smoking: French Memories, 
Kimball's by the Sea, Village Fare and the Village Gourmet. On January 1, 1995 
a policy making all municipal buildings and vehicles smoke-free will go into 
effect. Personnel from the Collaborative are working with tobacco vendors in 
Town to bring them into compliance with the state law regarding sales to minors. 
A compliance check held in the fall found that seventy percent of vendors were 
not in compliance with the law. Efforts to continue to reduce the health impacts 
of tobacco use will continue in 1995. 

The raccoon rabies epizootic hit Cohasset during 1994. Four cases of 
rabies in raccoons were reported from various areas in the town. Police and the 
Animal Control Officer continue to eliminate wild animals which show unusual 
neurological signs. Only animals involved in a human or domestic animal expo- 
sure are sent to the State Laboratory for testing. Two rabies clinics were spon- 
sored by the Board, providing rabies inoculations for both cats and dogs.

Pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine continues to be offered free to those 
persons over sixty-five years of age and those with a high risk of respiratory 
diseases. Immunizations can be obtained at the Social Service League office. 

The revolving account receipts and expenditures for septage disposal at 
Upper Blackstone Pollution Abatement District in 1994 were: 

Receipts $31,789.46 

Expenditure $30,816.95 

Interest Earned $ 502.04

METROPOLITAN AREA PLANNING COUNCIL 

Cohasset is a member of MAPC's South Shore Coalition subregion. 
Regional water and highway issues were the early focus of the South Shore 
Coalition, but over time the Coalition grew to address a wider range of regional 
policy and planning issues. This year, the South Shore Coalition focused on the 
Route 3 A Bridge re-construction, and the Old Colony Railroad restoration 
project. In addition, the Coalition hosted a Legislative Breakfast in April 1994, 
initiated a search for a Regional Solid Waste Planner, and presented a workshop 
for local officials on how to read an Environmental Impact Report. 

MAPC staff provided demographic data, including profiles of other com- 
munities and employment information, to the municipality. 

MAPC staff also assisted the community with the programming of trans- 
portation projects into the Transportation Improvement Program. Project 
solicitation requests, TIP updates, and project status reports were provided to 
the community on a regular basis.

MOSQUITO CONTROL COMMITTEE 

The Cohasset Mosquito Control Committee (CMCC) was thankful that no 
human cases of Western Equine Encephalitis (E.E.E.) were reported for Massa- 
chusetts in 1994. From May to the end of September, our committee received 
weekly reports from the Virology Division (Eastern Encephalitis Surveillance 
Program) of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health as to the status of 
the numbers and species of mosquitoes associated with E.E.E. found in trapping 
stations in Southeastern Massachusetts. At no time during the surveillance period 
was there an isolation of the virus known to directly cause E.E.E. The weekly 
reports from the Virology Division usually stated that "Numbers of all species of 
mosquitoes trapped remained, at below average levels for the long-term trap 
sites." 

Our major effort during 1994 involved a project to identify potential 
breeding areas in Cohasset. Use was made of 67 topographic maps of the town. 
These maps are now being checked with Town officials and the staff of the 
Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project for accuracy and any omissions. 

Our major efforts for 1995 including the following: 

1) A demonstration project in the wooded area between Sohier Street and 
Smith Place immediately to the west of the old railroad tracks. This Town- 
owned land is crossed by James Brook and several tributary streams. Our long- 
range goal for mosquito control is source reduction; i.e., the elimination of 
breeding sites rather than the use of pesticides. Preliminary plans for this project 
were presented before the Cohasset Conservation Commission, pending a more 
formal written documentation in the near future. 

2) Continuation and broadening the scope of information delivered to 
grade-school children concerning mosquito problems in the individual home 
environments. 

3) Making available to our citizens "packets" of information on the vari- 
ous aspects of mosquito control; and 

4) Visiting all householders requesting help with mosquito problems. If 
one has such problems, call the Cohasset Board of Health at 383-9900, Ext. 221 , 
to report such difficulties. 

Our committee sincerely welcomes suggestions concerning any aspect of 
mosquito control, especially information about potential breeding sites. 

We are happy to welcome for 1995 Elsa Miller, who will be filling a 
vacancy on the committee.

PLANNING BOARD 

The Cohasset Planning Board, under the authority granted to it by the 
Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 40A, Chapter 41, and the Cohasset Zoning 
Bylaws, fulfilled the following responsibilities in 1994: 

— Reviewed and approved ten subdivisions not requiring approval; 

— Reviewed for final approval amendments to two site plans; 

— Continued monitoring of approved subdivisions, cluster developments, 
and approved site plans under construction; 

— Revised and reprinted the Cohasset Zoning Bylaws; 

— The board held public hearings concerning amendments to bylaws 9.5 
and 3.3.4., which were both withdrawn; the board also considered a 
proposed zoning change from RB to HB (Assessors' map 51, plots 37- 
46). This article was denied by the board.

PLYMOUTH COUNTY MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 

The Commissioners of the Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project are 
pleased to submit the following report of our activities during 1994. 

The Project is a special district created by the State Legislature in 1957, 
and is now composed of 25 Plymouth County towns, the City of Brockton, and 
the Town of Cohasset in Norfolk County. On July 14, the Town of Whitman 
rejoined the Project. The Project is a regional response to a regional problem and 
provides a way of organizing specialized equipment, specially trained employees, 
and mosquito control professionals into a single agency with a broad geographical 
area of responsibility. 

Again in 1994, the season began with an above normal water table, which 
produced large numbers of spring brood mosquitoes throughout the County. 
Efforts were directed at larval mosquitoes, starting with the spring brood. 
Ground and aerial larviciding was accomplished using B.T.I., an environmentally 
selective bacterial agent. Upon emergence of the spring brood of adult mos- 
quitoes, ultra-low-volume adulticiding began. The Project responded to increased 
numbers of service requests until a drying trend occurred during mid-summer. 
All sprayers and trucks performed well, with little time lost to breakdowns. 

The threat of the mosquito-transmitted disease Eastern Equine Encephalitis 
(EEE) was low in 1994. This season marked the first time since 1981 that EEE 
virus was not isolated during the mosquito surveillance period. The recurring 
problem of EEE in Southeastern Massachusetts continues to ensure cooperation 
between this Project and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. 

-164- 



The figures specific to the Town of Cohasset are given below. While 
mosquitoes do not respect town lines, the information given below does provide 
a tally of the activities which have had the greatest impact on the health and 
comfort of Cohasset residents. 

Insecticide Application: 1,296 acres were treated, using truck mounted 
sprayers for control of adult mosquitoes. More than one application was made to 
the same site if mosquitoes reinvaded the area. The first treatments were made in 
May and the last in September. 

Our greatest effort has been targeted at mosquitoes in the larval stage, 
which can be found in woodland pools, swamps, marshes, and other standing 
water areas. Inspectors continually gather data on these sites and treat with 
highly specific larvicides when immature mosquitoes are present. Last year a 
total of 99 inspections were made to 77 catalogued breeding sites. 

Water Management: During 1994 crews removed blockages, brush and 
other obstructions from 650 linear feet of ditches and streams to prevent over- 
flows of stagnation that can result in mosquito breeding. This work, together 
with machine reclamation, is most often carried out in the fall and winter. 

Machine Reclamation: 160 linear feet of saltmarsh ditch was reconstructed 
in Cohasset, using one of the Project's two track-driven backhoes. 

Finally, we have been tracking complaint response time, that is, the time 
between notice of a mosquito problem and response by one of our inspectors. 
The complaint response time in the Town of Cohasset was less than two days, 
with more than 184 complaints answered. 

Mosquito Survey: A systematic sampling for mosquitoes in Cohasset indi- 
cates that Culex salinarius was the most abundant species. Other important 
species collected incl uded A edes vexans an d Culiseta melanur a. 

We encourage citizens or municipal officials to call our office for informa- 
tion about mosquitoes, mosquito-borne diseases, control practices, or any other 
matters of concern.

RECYCLING COMMITTEE 

Recycling in Cohasset continues successfully. Paper, corrugated cardboard, 
glass, magazines, clothing, cans, steel, plastic and returnables are all recycled to 
local vendors for further processing. 

Our new baler was installed and is working well. Baling corrugated card- 
board and plastic milk jugs has turned an expensive process into one of actual 
income to the Town. 

The Committee has continued to approach recycling from an educational 
rather than enforcement standpoint. Updated recycling handouts are distributed 
periodically at the site. Monitors also encourage proper recycling by residents at 
the Recycling Transfer Facility (commonly known as the RTF). Carol Oteri- 
Puffer accepted the appointment by the Board of Health as Recycling Coordina- 
tor for continuity of information and program development between the Board 
of Health, Recycling Committee, RTF personnel, School Departments and other 
municipal buildings. 

Annual School Day coordinated by the Recycling Committee gives the stu- 
dents in four classes the opportunity to visit the Recycling Transfer Facility and 
review the various methods of recycling. Caitlin Connolly has been appointed to 
the newly established position of Recycling Student Representative from the 
High School. 

Office paper from the schools, junk mail and telephone books have been 
added to our recycling operations. Button battery recycling (hearing aid, etc.) 
has been offered through local retail sale outlets. 

Wheelchairs, crutches, etc. are being recycled to Estrusco Associates in 
Scituate for re-use. 

The Committee's goal is to continue in the forefront of South Shore com- 
munities with expansion, and utilizing innovative ideas and new recycling pro- 
grams. We extend our appreciation to all the Town RTF users who cooperate 
and participate enthusiastically in the Mandatory Recycling which has been in 
effect since 1989.

PUBLIC SAFETY 

ANIMAL CONTROL DEPARTMENT 

The Animal Control Department saw a sharp increase in calls during 1994. 
The influx of calls can be attributed to Cohasset^ first positive case of Racoon 
Rabies over the July 4th weekend. Luckily, we had expected a Rabies outbreak 
in 1994 and we were well equipped to handle the situation when it surfaced. 
From July on there were hundreds of calls to the Animal Control Department, 
Police Department, and Board of Health regarding suspected rabid animals. To 
date four animals found in various parts of Town have tested positive for Rabies. 

Also during 1994, in an effort to streamline Cohasset's Animal Control 
operation, the Board of Selectmen put the Animal Control Department under 
the jurisdiction of the Cohasset Police Department. Since that time the Animal 
Control Department has become more efficient and dog licensing has hit an all- 
time high at almost 900 licenses issued. Hopefully, during the coming year we 
can license over 900 dogs. 

I look forward to working with the various Town Departments, Boards, 
and residents of Cohasset during 1995, and urge you to call my office with any 
questions you may have. Thank you. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William P. Quigley 
Animal Control Officer 



EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT 

Although the nation was plagued with several emergencies during 1994, 
Cohasset remained relatively quiet. 

Electrical outages from fallen tree limbs were handled by Eastern Edison. 

A Christmas 1994 windstorm caused severe discontent for many over the 
holiday, although this was not a declared emergency. 

Efforts are under way to obtain surplus water storage trailers from the 
state. Acquisition of portable generators is also being investigated. 

The Town has reason to be proud of its employees for their dedication to 
duty during trying times.

HARBOR MASTER 

A finale to 1994 was a Northeaster with wind gusts to 70 mph, which 
resulted in little damage to the Harbor. 

The 1994 boating season was another safe one, with no loss of life or 
property. In October the Scituate side of the clam flats were opened and in 
December the two towns and the environmental police fined three persons for 
commercial harvesting. Cohasset Harbor was also host to the National 210 
Championships this year and saw Sarah Leggat make a strong showing. Plans for 
the Harbor and channel dredging are progressing smoothly. 

From the Log: 

Total number of calls responded to: 81 

Boats Towed: 32 

Boats Dewatered: 10 

Boats Escorted: 5 

Assists to Coast Guard: 15

WIRE DEPARTMENT 

I herewith submit the Annual Report of the Wire Department for the year 
ending December 31, 1994. 



FIRE AND TRAFFIC LIGHTS 

In 1994 one new master fire box was added to the system. There were 
fifteen hundred feet of new alarm wire installed. Fire Alarm Boxes were tested 
for proper operation, and most boxes were painted. Traffic lights were painted 
and new flashing units installed in all lights. 



WIRE INSPECTIONS 

All electric work performed by contractors was inspected by the depart- 
ment and fees turned into the Town Treasurer. 



ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS AND REPAIRS TO TOWN BUILDINGS 

Repairs and new work to Town-owned buildings and properties were 
handled by the Wire Department. It was a busy year with repairs and new 
installations. 

I wish to thank the Board of Selectmen and all department heads for their 
cooperation with the department this past year.

PUBLIC WORKS 

GOVERNMENT ISLAND STUDY COMMITTEE 

The Town of Cohasset has, as part of its 10.06 square miles of ledge, 
woods, water and fields, 7.37 acres of history which would be difficult to dupli- 
cate anywhere. These few acres are called "GOVERNMENT ISLAND." Some 
Old Timers or history buffs will insist that you call it "DOANE'S ISLAND" and 
they would be right. 

This Committee, which consists of seven individuals (volunteers), is called 
the Government Island Study Committee and rightly so, for we "study", keep in 
touch with, watch over, and make suggestions to the Board of Selectmen regard- 
ing maintenance and improvements to these 7.37 acres of Cohasset. The Select- 
men will authorize the expenditures if they agree with the GISC. In some cases 
these suggestions are brought before Town Meeting to be approved by the voters. 
I will say the voters have been very receptive to our suggestions and the Com- 
mittee wishes to thank them for their vote of confidence. 

During 1994 we held four meetings to discuss: 

1 . General conditions of the Island. 

2. Status of the Minot Light Replica project. 

3. Plans for the property with the Hagerty Property Acquisition Com- 
mittee. 

4. Other business. 

The Committee is pleased to welcome its newest member, Constance 
Afshar, who was appointed in late October. Her appointment rounds out the 
varied backgrounds of those on the GISC. She replaces Edward J. Figueiredo 
who has served on the committee for the last 27 years. The Committee wishes to 
thank Ed for his efforts and contributions to the Town. Two members, Noel A. 
Ripley and James R. Bonetti, have been reappointed for additional three-year 
terms. 

This Committee believes that Government Island is one of Cohasset's 
greatest assets, historically, commercially and recreationally. We want it to be 
walked, studied, looked at, appreciated and loved by the Townspeople and 
visitors alike.

HARBOR COMMITTEE 

The Harbor Committee met during 1994 and continued to formulate plans 
and recommendations for the efficient and safe use of the harbor. Highlights of 
the past year were : 

1 . The Harbor Master now has jurisdiction of up to three miles outside 
Cohasset Harbor, along with other agencies. The Harbor Master may be re- 
quested to provide rescue assistance by the Coast Guard or the harbor masters of 
adjacent towns. 

2. The Roy proposed private dock system: The Committee met several 
times with the Roy's engineers to establish a position and make a recommenda- 
tion on the proposal. We recommended approval of the proposed oroiect. 
subject to conditions which were forwarded to the Selectmen. 

3. The Committee recommended acquisition of the Figueiredo property 
and Marina. We felt that the addition of this property, along with ownership of 
the Hagerty property, would be in the best interest of the Town to provide 
greater access to the waterfront for Town residents. 

4. The Sewer Commission made a presentation to the Committee of its 
plans for directing the effluent from the new treatment facilities to the harbor, 
either via James Brook or a new direct connection. The Committee voted to 
approve the Sewer Commission articles to be presented at the Special Town 
Meeting. 

5. The state has allocated funds to the Town to construct a sewerage 
pumpout facility for boats. We recommended that the facility be located on 
Lawrence Wharf, as it could eventually be connected to the sewerage system. 

6. Dredging: The timetable for the dredging project is currently 1995- 
1996. There is a definite need for dredging not only Cohasset Harbor but also 
the channel. Money has been set aside for that project from the federal govern- 
ment and by the state.

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 

Because of the excessive amount of storms during the winter season the 
Highway Department was kept busy clearing our roads for safe travel. Many 
thanks to the men who do an outstanding job for the Town of Cohasset. 

When good weather finally arrived we began our road sweeping program 
and swept and cleaned every street of sand build-up and general debris. During 
the following months the sweeper was out frequently, keeping the streets clean. 

With monies appropriated at Town Meeting, we replaced 566 feet of fence 
at various locations and we will be continuing this project every year. We also 
temporarily repaired the fence at Reeds Beach on Jerusalem Road. 

In conjunction with the Tree & Park Department we constructed a new 
handicapped walkway and ramp at the Joseph Osgood School. We also con- 
structed a new handicapped parking area and ramp at the Paul Pratt Library. 

With 40 tons of asphalt we resurfaced the boatramp at Parker Avenue and 
rebuilt the flapper arms at Cohasset Harbor. We then rebuilt and resurfaced the 
parking area and walkways at the Cohasset Lightkeepers House. 

While good weather continued we installed new drainage on Jerusalem 
Road Drive. We also installed four new basins and rebuilt eight basins, along with 
611 feet of new pipe. 

Although we received no State money for resurfacing, we did use 250 tons 
of asphalt to do hot patching on various private ways and a section of North 
Main Street. 

All through the year we repaired or replaced signs where needed. 

I would like to extend special thanks to my men and to the men from the 
Tree & Park and Wire and Water Departments for their cooperation.

Harold W. Litchfield 
Highway Surveyor

PUBLIC WORKS GARAGE STUDY COMMITTEE 

The Public Works Garage Study Committee was formed in 1992 to study 
the requirements of and potential sites for a centralized public works facility. 
Specific tasks to be accomplished include the following: 

— Review the data and conclusions of the earlier Town Garage Study 
Committee; 

— Review the data and conclusions of the Public Works Study Committee; 

— Determine the space needs for equipment and personnel of the various 
public works functions and operations, including School Department 
and refueling depot; 

— Survey the Town for potential sites; and 

— Review zoning, wetlands and locational issues of each site. 

As a result of dicusssions with other Town boards and committees, a site 
located at the gravel pit off North Main Street was selected. In 1993 this loca- 
tion was surveyed and water table and perk tests were conducted. An architect 
was engaged to develop a preliminary conceptual design and cost estimates for 
the new garage. At the 1994 Annual Town Meeting, a warrant article that would 
have authorized funding for the project was defeated. In addition, it was dis- 
covered that the gravel pit location was included in the Watershed Protection 
District, the zoning for which prohibits garages. 

Once again, the Public Works Garage Study Committee met with other 
Town boards and committees to find an alternative location. Based on these 
discussions, the RTF site off Cedar Street was selected. An engineering firm was 
engaged to develop a cost estimate for site preparation, and an architect was 
engaged to develop cost estimates for the garage structure itself. In 1995, we 
plan to submit a warrant article for Annual Town Meeting asking the Town to 
approve funding for the design and construction of a new public works garage 
facility.

SEWER COMMISSION 

After very nearly twenty years of negotiation, the Town and the Common- 
wealth have reached agreement on the standards for and extent of the Town's 
Waste Water Treatment Plant ("WWTP") and Collection System. The terms and 
conditions of this accord are set forth in a new Agreement for Judgment ("the 
New Agreement") which replaces an earlier Agreement for Judgment which had 
been approved by a Special Town Meeting on February 13, 1980. The New 
Agreement will ensure that the Town's new system meets the Commonwealth's 
and the EPA's current stringent environmental standards on a basis acceptable to 
the Town. The New Agreement was approved by a unanimous vote of the 
Special Town Meeting on October 25, 1994. Under the New Agreement, the 
Town has three possible Alternatives for the new treatment system. 

— The Hull Alternative, under which the Town's waste water would be 
transferred by a pipeline to the Town of Hull's WWTP for treatment. 
The capital cost of this Alternative, which has already been approved 
by the Commonwealth, would be approximately $5,100,000. 

— The James Brook Alternative, under which the Town's WWTP would be 
expanded and upgraded to state-of-the-art performance levels. Under 
this Alternative, the WWTP effluent would continue to be discharged 
into James Brook as at the present time. The capital cost of this Alter- 
native would be approximately $2,120,000. 

— The Cohasset Harbor Alternative, which would be identical to the 
James Brook Alternative, except that the effluent would be discharged 
into Cohasset Harbor. The capital cost for this Alternative would be 
approximately $2,865,000. 

It should be noted that neither the James Brook Alternative nor the 
Cohasset Harbor Alternative has been approved by the Commonwealth/EPA. 
The Town's engineers, Tutela Engineering Associates, believe it is highly prob- 
able that one or both of the Cohasset Alternatives will be "approvable", and 
consequently, the Special Town Meeting on October 25, 1994, voted to fund 
the engineering justification for the Cohasset Alternatives ("Facilities Plans"). 
Work on the Facilities Plans is progressing with an Initial Draft Report due on 
May 1, 1995. A Final Report (and recommendation of the preferred approvable 
Alternative) is due on May 1, 1996. 

In mid October, the Commission engaged the engineering firm of Whitman 
and Howard, Inc., to investigate and locate sources of inflow and infiltration 
(leakage) in the Town's collection pipe line system. Excessive leakage during 
heavy rains has impaired the operation of the Town's WWTP. We hope, as a 
result of this work, to reduce the amount of leakage in the system and thereby 
ensure the superior operation of the Town's existing WWTP and the new System. 

Our contract operator, Professional Services Group, Inc., continues to 
operate and maintain the Town's WWTP to an excellent standard.

TREE, PARK & CEMETERY DEPARTMENT 

The Tree and Park Department has a Capital Outlay Project every year. 
This year was to grade, loam, and seed half of the Osgood Playground. We have 
started to reseed an area of Beechwood Cemetery and also upright old slate 
gravestones. We also maintain trees, lawns and roadsides. 

I would like to thank all the departments for their assistance and coopera- 
tion during the year.

WATER DEPARTMENT 

Water Distribution Problems: 

Last June, sections of the Cohasset water system suffered severe water 
pressure reductions. Cohasset had the first declared water emergency in many 
years. After a flex joint from Germany was installed at Cunningham's Bridge to 
replace the old out-of-service flex joint, it was discovered that the pipe on the 
beach side of Cunningham's Bridge was not eight-inch pipe but older four-inch 
pipe. Eight hundred feet of eight-inch emergency pipe was then laid across 
Cunningham's Bridge to increase flow and pressure to the northern section of 
the water system, bypassing the four-inch in-ground pipes. The Water Commis- 
sioners and the Selectmen then declared a water emergency. The Fire Chief and 
other concerned citizens held a series of emergency meetings to begin addressing 
these water pressure and public safety issues. The Advisory Committee approved 
an emergency transfer of $19,000 for an emergency study. 

July and August saw the resignation of Chairman Ronald H. Goodwin, the 
appointment of Robert E. Kasameyer to this vacancy and the reorganization of 
the board with Frederick R. Koed as the new Chairman. 

Computer Distribution Model: 

Dominic Tutela, principal of a consulting engineering firm, was hired to 
study the Cohasset water system and to make emergency recommendations. 
Tutela Engineering performed C-tests on pipes on Beechwood, King, and Beech 
Streets and Jerusalem Road to determine what condition the pipes were in. 
These test results were put into a computer model of the Town's water system. 
The C-tests were extrapolated for the rest of the Town based on the various 
pipes' ages and sizes. The engineers then experimented with the computer model 
to find the most cost effective improvements. 



-177 



Rate increase to cover projected bond costs r 

The proposed improvements were then presented to the Special Town 
Meeting held in October 1994. Special Town Meeting approved $2.5 million 
dollars for improvements, along with a 30% rate increase to pay for these 
improvements. The engineering plans needed to prepare bid requests for these 
improvements are now being prepared. The most important improvement is the 
long awaited loop down Forest Avenue. Currently no fire hydrants exist for 
close to one mile on Forest Avenue. Other Phase One improvements include 
placing underground the 800 feet of eight-inch pipe on the Atlantic Avenue 
section and in Beechwood, replacing a long section at the upper end from 
approximately Hillside Drive to the ballfield. Other scheduled improvements 
include replacement of the plant filter bed and cleaning of the storage tank. 

Revenue and Metering Problems: 

The Water Commissioners are planning to replace or upgrade all of the 
water meters throughout the Town with a new system that will fairly track all 
water consumption, greatly improve billing, and eliminate estimated and in- 
accurate bills. These meters will be read from outside readers connected to the 
meters inside the buildings. 

Contract Services: 

After the resignation of Water Superintendent Duncan T. McCormack on 
February 25, the Water Commissioners voted to hire interim contract superin- 
tendent services. Professional Services Group, Inc. was hired in March for man- 
agement of the department, with Steve Nelson of PSG as Superintendent. In 
September, PSG chose not to re-bid on the contract and Whitewater Inc. was 
hired, with Dick Cohan as Superintendent. The current board believes, because 
of the high level of coordination required now and in the immediate future, con- 
tract services will give the Town the additional management needed to keep all 
of these projects on track. 

The Water Commissioners and employees of the department would like to 
thank all of the various boards and committees that have assisted the department 
and the board throughout the tumultuous year. The board also asks that the 
Town bear with the department as these projects proceed, with the understand- 
ing that we will all be better off after these improvements. The board will con- 
tinue to seek improvements in the system for the benefit of all of the rate 
payers and taxpayers. For the year 1994 the plant production was 236,319,500 
gallons out to distribution.

REGIONAL REFUSE DISPOSAL PLANNING BOARD 

The South Shore Regional Refuse Disposal Planning Board has three 
members from each of ten towns: Cohasset, Duxbury, Hanover, Hingham, Hull, 
Marshfield, Norwell, Rockland, Scituate, and Weymouth. At present, there is 
only one member from Cohasset. 

In late 1994 the Board started the process of hiring a solid waste planner 
to review and update the 1992 regional solid waste management plan, update the 
status of each member community's solid waste programs and landfill capacity, 
and to recommend and present a strategy for implementation of the updated 
plan. 

The Board will be considering whether to recommend that a Regional 
Refuse Disposal District shall be created, including all ten towns or any two or 
more towns, and what the costs and benefits might be for each of the towns. We 
are looking at a number of potential options, including a "menu" form of dis- 
trict which would enable towns to join for certain specific purposes. 

Because of the diligent work of the Board of Health, Recycling Committee, 
and the Town's Solid Waste Disposal Planning Committee, Cohasset has a long 
term contract with SEMASS for disposal of solid waste and an enviable and 
highly successful recycling program. However, it still behooves Cohasset to 
closely examine the potential benefits of joining a regional solid waste disposal 
district. 

If the Board recommends the formation of such a district, that recommen- 
dation will be presented to the Selectmen and will be put to a vote by the Town. 
The Board expects to present a recommendation to the member towns before 
the end of 1996. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JohnK.McNabb,Jr. 



WATER RESOURCES PROTECTION COMMITTEE 

The Water Resources Protection Committee was reactivated last year with 
the appointment of new members by the Board of Selectmen. The Committee 
membership includes four citizen members and representatives from the Drainage 
Advisory Committee, Conservation Commission, Board of Health, Planning 
Board and Water Commission. 

By passage of Article 46 at the March, 1994 Annual Town Meeting, the 
Town charged the Committee to investigate potential sources of pollution to our 
public drinking water resources, review the 1986 Camp Dresser McKee Water 
Resources Management Plan and Water Resource District, study feasible means 
of regional watershed protection, and to present a report to the Town at the 
1995 Annual Town Meeting. 

The Committee has identified many point sources of potential pollution of 
our water resources, and has made progress in identifying potential non-point 
sources of pollution. 

-179- 



We are continuing to review the 1986 CDM Water Resources Management 
Plan and the existing Water Resources District. 

We have proposed to the South Shore Coalition that they activate the 
South Shore Water Supply Protection Advisory Committee as a means of 
developing an effective regional water supply protection strategy for the 60% of 
the Lily Pond watershed that lies outside Cohasset. 

The Committee has been reviewing potential methods to increase enforce- 
ment of the protections provided by the Water Resource District, to educate 
homeowners and businesses on methods to prevent non-point sources of pollu- 
tion, and to adopt regional water supply protection measures. Also, we have 
been discussing potential changes in bylaws and Town regulations to improve 
water supply protection measures. 

This is a report of progress. The work of this Committee, to improve the 
protection of our priceless public drinking water supplies, continues. We 
welcome the input and participation of all residents of the Town, and appreciate 
the assistance provided to the Committee by the Board of Selectmen, and other 
Town Boards and Committees.

HUMAN SERVICES 



COUNCIL ON AGING 

The Council on Aging has been in existence as a town department by way 
of unanimous voice vote since the 1968 Annual Town Meeting. Its main func- 
tion remains the same today as it did twenty-six years ago. This is to provide 
information, advocacy and resources to the older residents of Cohasset. It con- 
tinues to be the community focal point for services and programs that can assist, 
support and supplement the concerns and needs of residents and families. 

The prime responsibilities of the Council on Aging focus on six pertinent 
areas: Information and referral, advocacy, outreach, transportation, health 
benefits, and education. During 1994, the Council on Aging met these responsi- 
bilities by the development and implementation of pertinent programs and 
services both at the center and via the successful cooperation of many commu- 
nity agencies and organizations. At the end of the fiscal year, we provided 
services and/or programs to over 850 individuals with over 10,603 units of ser- 
vices given via the aging network and support system. 

The Outreach program continues to see the largest growth in service. Out- 
reach is defined as a support service and aids in providing an avenue for the pro- 
vision of services for the spouse, children, and caregivers of the family member. 
Outreach is one of the most important facets of our department. Our goal at the 
Council "Outreach" is to try to help and direct every inquiry or concern to the 
proper resource. It is the main objective of any human service agency, which is 
to provide a means to "reach out" and get assistance and/or support for individ- 
ual needs, whether this is in the form of advocating for someone with respect to 
health/or social service issues, or assisting in finding housing, transportation, or 
making arrangements for an "at risk" elder. 

In conjunction with the Hingham VNA, the Council hosts a monthly sup- 
port group for family members caring for elders at home. They meet every 
second Friday of the month. A special thank you go to Carolyn Housman and 
Karen Farmer (LSW) for their work and cooperation with the Councils in help- 
ing to bring this much needed support to the spouses and family members who 
attended the series and support group over the past year. 

Other accomplishments in 1994 include: 

I. The successful procurement of a Federal Grant Award under the Mobil- 
ity Access Program, Section 16 (b)2, for an 11-passenger handicapped vehicle. 
This vehicle was awarded to the Cohasset and Hingham COA under the coopera- 
tion of South Shore Elder Services, (the Area Agency on Aging). The vehicle was 
delivered in December of 1993 and was "on the road" in early 1994 with a 
total of sixteen drivers, who have been trained to date on the use of the van. 
This vehicle allows the Council on Aging to provide more adequate and quality 
transportation services to the older adults of Cohasset, as well as to those resi- 
dents with mobility /physical impairments that require specialized transportation. 



181 



A special thank you to all who assisted in securing the new vehicle, especially 
Lou Simeone, Ray Buckley, Rose Kierce, Gerard Keating, Ham Tewksbury, 
David Whipple, Mitzi Railsback, Dave Peck, Anna Abbruzzese, Jack Wilson and 
Arthur Johnson for taking the specialized training and for their assistance in 
driving the new van. 

II. A Federal Grant for specialized transportation was again awarded to 
five area towns, (Cohasset, Hingham, Hull, Norwell and Scituate), who devel- 
oped a consortium to provide medical access to Boston and to provide proper 
handicapped accessibility for those with physical and mobility impairments. 
Norwell COA acts as the head agency for this program, known as MAP-5. An 
important concept of this medical access program is the combined effort in all 
five communities to work with all volunteer transportation programs to support 
and supplement their endeavors. Without their work and dedication, many of 
our older residents of these communities, the MAP-5 program could not exist. 
The program was first started in October, 1993 and continues to be a great asset 
to the Councils and volunteer agencies involved. 

III. In 1994, the Council on Aging was awarded the department's first 
Elder Service Corps Worker, Virginia Anderson. This grant position is a support 
service in the office and has been a much needed addition to the COA staff and 
office. Virginia has been on board since January 1994. 

Volunteers continue to be the backbone of our department. In 1994 we 
were most fortunate to receive over $150,000 in In-Kind Volunteer Service from 
over 150 different individuals. Examples of this dedication and commitment 
range from Telephone Reassurance, SHARE, SHINE Program, instructors, 
assisting in the office, a computer training and networking, van driving and/or 
running errands for seniors, to respite and support for the caregivers, and nutri- 
tion volunteers from the area churches and the community at large. The Council 
would be hard pressed to provide the quality of service without such dedicated 
people who spend countless hours helping others so that they have the same 
opportunities. 

Our Senior Center continues to be an easily accessible place for elders to 
"drop-in" for an informal chat, thereby enabling us to assist in meeting their 
needs without the loss of privacy or dignity. SHINE, SHARE, and Outreach lec- 
tures have increased steadily over the past year, and I am grateful to the wonder- 
ful staff who are dedicated and have embraced the spirit of helping one another 
in order to make this program work. 

Our exercise, line dancing, and water aerobics keep the body healthy and 
fit, while our T'ai Chi assists in keeping the mind healthy ; our craft and instruc- 
tional classes impart the feeling of accomplishment; the luncheons help to alle- 
viate the loneliness, as well as provide new information through the well attended 
educational classes. 

As more "new" elders enter the aged society, they may turn to formal 
community agencies for information and assistance to maintain their indepen- 
dence and productivity. We believe that the Cohasset COA meets these changing 
needs. The Council on Aging is becoming the "Focal Point" in the true sense of 
the meaning and will continue to provide efficient and effective delivery of 
services to the Town's residents in the coming years.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to the 
Board, Staff and Volunteers, who are the backbone of operations, the "Friends" 
for their programs and financial support, the Community Center Staff, and the 
other Town Departments for all their support.

COHASSET HOUSING AUTHORITY 

January of 1995 marked twenty years of providing affordable housing for 
seniors and the personally challenged at our Harborview complex. Adjacent to 
Harborview the Authority maintains two Chapter 689 Special Needs projects. 
Families are served by a small Section 8 Program which will enjoy some expan- 
sion in the spring. 

Diverse activity marked the greater part of 1994 for the Cohasset Housing 
Authority. A new Director, Marilyn A. LeBlanc, was hired to succeed the retir- 
ing Director and a new board member, Betty Grassie, was elected in April and 
the Harborview Tenants' Association was revived. 

Spring brought the formation of a Modernization Committee comprised 
of tenants and staff to survey and research the physical needs of Harborview and 
ultimately draft and present a comprehensive modernization proposal to our 
funding source, the Executive Office of Communities and Development (EOCD). 
This application for modernization funds could not have been accomplished 
with such thoroughness without the dedication of the Modernization Committee 
to their task, James V. Mascioli's construction expertise, and the survey and 
execution of site plans by the Norfolk County Engineers, all of whom have 
our sincerest gratitude. As a result of that combined effort, the Executive 
Office of Communities and Development awarded the Authority $90,000 to 
remedy site conditions and achieve handicapped accessibility. 

An upgrade of computer and maintenance equipment will aid us in opera- 
ting more efficiently in the coming year. 

With the support of the Board of Selectmen, the Executive Secretary and 
the Social Service League, we applied for and received twenty-five additional 
Section 8 Rental Assistance certificates. We anticipate, with the added certificate 
availability, to better serve the family housing needs of the community. 

The Cohasset Housing Authority was reviewed extensively in 1994 by its 
funding source, EOCD. The Bureau of Housing Management reviewed our man- 
agement capabilities, the Bureau of Housing Finance reviewed our financial 
capabilities, and the newly formed Housing Inspection Unit reviewed the physical 
property. The State Auditor reviewed our programs as well and we await the 
results of those reviews. 

The Authority extends its deepest gratitude to those Town departments 
and agencies that have contributed so richly to the quality of life here at 
Harborview.

DRUG AND ALCOHOL COMMITTEE 

It gives us great pleasure to report to residents the activities of your Drug 
and Alcohol Committee, during the year 1994. 

Again in 1994, the Third Annual "Winterfest" Drug Free Weekend was 
held in late January. Community response to this annual event continues to be 
very positive. During May 1994 your Drug and Alcohol Committee participated 
in the Social Service League's annual Health Fair, providing one more forum 
for our continuing efforts toward public education and dissemination of 
information. 

This year keyrings were made up for the Senior Class of Cohasset High 
School as a continued attempt to remind teens of the seriousness of drinking and 
driving. A booklet for distribution to parents of 7th grade students entitled, 
"Growing up Drug Free," was made available again this year, providing informa- 
tion to parents. 

1994 marked the fifth year of the very successful "Safe Homes" program, 
and community response grows each year. "Safe Homes" is a program designed 
to provide a network for parents who are concerned about unsupervised parties. 
During September 1994, we hosted a regional conference of "Safe Homes" at 
the Lightkeepers House on Government Island. This very successful exchange 
of ideas and information included participation by the Towns of Hingham, 
Scituate, Duxbury, Hanover, Rockland, Norwell, Marshfield and the Silver Lake 
area. Groundwork was established for further networking and financial assistance 
at this meeting. 

During 1993 discussions were held with Dr. Mike Gill, Police Chief Brian 
Noonan and the Drug and Alcohol Committee regarding implementation of the 
D.A.R.E. program. As a result of the on-going discussions, an association be- 
tween the schools and police department was formed. P.A.L.S. (Police Assisting 
Local Schools), "For Wellness," transmogrified from this effort, brings the 
police into the schools in a positive, constructive manner. Many thanks are 
offered to Police Officer Lisa Matos for her exemplary effort and work with 
this particular program. 

For the second consecutive year your Drug and Alcohol Committee re- 
ceived an award for its efforts, and was honored at a gala event at the Hanover 
Mall hosted by the Hanover Police Department. The committee was recognized 
for its community work in the fight against alcohol and other drugs. 

Our efforts will continue for 1995 and our goals include the inception of 
an autumn Drug Free Weekend, support of P.A.L.S. program, and our regional 
association network and partnerships. The Drug and Alcohol Committee fully 
support the re-establishment of the Teen Center and wish to acknowledge grati- 
tude to the Teen Center Board of Directors for their efforts and work. 



-185- 



We wish to thank specifically Chief Brian Noonan, Dr. Mike Gill, and 
Selectperson Martha Gjesteby for their support and efforts this past year. With 
regret, the resignation of Sgt. Robert Jackson from our Committee was accepted 
this past year. We owe Sgt. Jackson many thanks for his four years of service to 
our Committee.

COMMISSION ON DISABILITIES 



During this year the Handicapped Commission became the Commission on 
Disabilities to conform with other towns. This year saw many improvements for 
disabled people. The Paul Pratt Library complied with the Americans With Dis- 
abilities Act by remodeling the children's bathroom as well as adding a HP 
parking space. The Cohasset Lightkeeper's House, accessible to people with 
disabilities, opened to the public. The Cohasset Jr. -Sr. High School installed a 
wheelchair lift to accommodate disabled students. 

The Commission on Disabilities keeps informed about laws concerning the 
disabled. The Commission houses information on different disability issues con- 
cerning the disabled for use of the Town when needed. 

The Commission on Disabilities would like to thank Katherine Bryant and 
Barbara O'Pray for their dedication and valued advice. Both women served two 
terms on the Commission. Because of their selflessness, the Commission was able 
to function more efficiently.

HISTORICAL COMMISSION 

During the past two years the Historical Commission has made great 
strides forward: 

The Minot Light Replica has all of the glass installed, the interior has been 
bricked and a panel of the original bricks is visible, the original bell is installed, 
and the upper railings and windbraces are in place. A great amount of credit goes 
to Herbert Jason for the endless dedication and hours of work, including the 
time spent reconstructing blueprints on his kitchen table. 

We have raised approximately $100,000 in donations, services, and mater- 
ials. We have sold approximately $16,000 in "T" shirts, sweat shirts, license 
plates, tote bags, prints, and tack pins. We have collected large and small dona- 
tions, and all are greatly appreciated. Incidentally, we still need more money to 
complete the project. 

Hamilton Tewksbury and Noel Ripley, with the good help of the Fire 
Department, volunteered their time to paint the dials of the Town clock. All of 
the money realized was donated to the Minot Light Replica. The East Dial train 
has been repaired. Francis Collins located the short circuit in the wiring and the 
broken key-way in the winding clutch. 

David Wadsworth has completed 784 survey forms of the older houses, 
summer cottages and interesting barns. This is great progress and represents a 
large amount of dedicated hard work. The Minot Light House Shore Station at 
Government Island has been submitted to the State of Massachusetts and the 
Federal Government for acceptance and the complex is now listed on the 
National Historical District Registry. It was a long and involved process, requiring 
a good deal of effort. 

We had great hopes of completing our plans for the restoration of as many 
original buildings on Government Island as possible. We projected moving the 
Shore Station Boat House back to the island, where it came from. Perhaps this 
may be a possibility for the future. 

We meet the second Monday of each month at the Town Hall. We welcome 
visitors and input from concerned citizens. Our central purpose is to maintain 
the flavor and historical integrity of the Town of Cohasset.

PAUL PRATT MEMORIAL LIBRARY 

In 1994, two major topics assumed unusual importance in the considera- 
tions and activities of the Trustees of the Paul Pratt Memorial Library. The first 
concerned various projects dealing with the maintenance of the library building. 
The second topic concerned the significant extent that computers are changing, 
or will change, traditional ways that libraries do business. 

Maintenance: Ongoing maintenance projects, initiated in prior years, 
included repair of the library cupola, new carpeting for the rotunda and library 
staff office, and installation of new, more efficient lighting throughout the 
library. These three projects were essentially completed in 1994, although finish 
work on the base of the cupola must await repairs to the library roof. Stephen 
Wigmore, the Town Wire Inspector, installed the lighting, with the Chief 
Librarian's help. Eastern Edison Company provided financial incentives for this 
work. 

The April Town Meeting authorized monies for (1) materials needed by 
the Highway Department to construct a handicapped parking space in the circle 
in front of the library, (2) repairs to exterior masonry, and (3) repairs to the 
library's roofs, gutters, and downspouts. The parking space was expeditiously 
completed by the Highway Department, but since the building repair projects 
are subject to the public bidding law, numerous delays have occurred in the 
process of writing specifications and the contract which bidders must sign, and 
receiving required approval from various sources. It is expected that these 
projects will go out to bid in early 1995. 

A very needy maintenance project, but one which was cosmetic rather 
than structural, was undertaken by the Friends of the Cohasset Library, Inc. 
Their renovation of the children's bathroom on the lower level of the library 
produced an attractive room which fully complies with handicapped access 
requirements, and spruces up the lower level very nicely. 

Special maintenance projects for 1995 include restoration of the murals 
in the entrance rotunda^ commissioned and given to the library by Miss Charlotte 
Tower, the Librarian from 1934 to 1947. They were painted by local artist 
Maclvor Reddie and depict four important scenes from Cohasset's history. The 
second project which should be completed is restoration of the face of the clock 
on the front of the library. As of this writing, it seems certain that a generous 
donor will fund both these projects. 

Attention to maintenance of the library grounds will be a priority in the 
coming year, with the hope of working closely with the Tree and Park Depart- 
ment and the Amateur Gardeners of Cohasset to complete a landscape design 
created by Trustee Barbara Power. 

Computers: Two major library functions in Cohasset are now done 
through access to a twenty-four town computer network, the Old Colony 
Library Network. The two functions are (1) user access to the catalog of books 
available by means of computer terminals, and (2) all library records concerning 
the circulation of books to users. Cohasset High School students have access 
at the High School to a computer terminal which ties in to the OCLN collection. 
In addition, literature searches of current periodicals can now be made on a 
personal computer in the reference room, which uses regularly updated 
CD-ROMs. 



188 



The Trustees and staff are challenged by the many possibilities for further 
use of computers in the library: challenged by questions of cost, space, appro- 
priateness, practicality and maintenance. It is necessary both to keep abreast of 
and understand these possibilities, but also to ponder philosophically the pla'cel 
of each in a public library. As 1994 ended, a decision was made to acquire 
another personal computer to provide user access to various CD-ROMs which 
contain reference materials, such as encyclopedia. This computer is a gift of the 
Friends of the Cohasset Library, Inc. 

Trustees: In 1994, Katharine Sturtevant resigned as a Trustee in January, 
due to a move out of town. Her conscientious service as both a Trustee and 
volunteer has been missed. New faces on the Board of Trustees, elected in April, 
are Anne Bowdoin and June Hubbard. Patience Towle was also elected to a 
three-year term, after completing a one-year appointment. 

Library Endowment: On recommendation of the Trustees' Investment 
Advisory Committee, the Trustees invested about 10% of the library's endow- 
ment in Scudder International Fund, with the remainder invested in Vanguard's 
STAR Fund. The Trustees are fortunate that John R. Chase and Laurens MacLure 
serve on this committee. 

During 1994, additional gifts were made to the Elizabeth F. Eaton Fund 
and a new fund was established in memory of James L. Whelan. These additions 
to endowment totaled $6,289. Income from this and other memorial funds, 
included in the total endowment, permitted the Trustees to use $13,916 of 
endowment income for the purchase of books in Fiscal Year 1994. 

The Trustees were notified in August that the library would receive 25% 
of the estate of the late John Fleming. It is estimated that this will amount to 
about $25,000, which will be distributed in 1995. 

The Friends: In 1994, the Friends of the Cohasset Library, Inc. continued 
most programs of former years, which included contributing more than $30,000 
worth of volunteer hours to the library, donating museum passes to four major 
Boston museums, funding the library's summer reading program and puzzle club, 
conducting an Annual Book Sale, and maintaining the "Library Corner" in the 
Cohasset Mariner. In addition, the Friends purchased a PC for CD-ROMs for the 
reference room, organized a Volunteer Recognition Evening, renovated the 
children's bathroom on the lower level, and organized, hung and held opening 
receptions for each of four artists whose work was displayed in the library's 
reference room over the year. 

The Friends' excellent efforts, under Suzan Killilea's leadership, have made 
invaluable contributions to the vitality of the library and the Trustees speak for 
the Town in expressing great appreciation to them. 

Other Gifts: Gifts to the book fund were made by the Cohasset Golf Club 
Niners and the Scituate-Cohasset Newcomers; several donors contributed to the 
library in memory of George F. Hinchliffe. Funds donated to the book fund 
totaled $660. 

An excellent collection of thirty-seven books on sailing were given from 
the library of C. Louis Gagnebin, Jr. by his family. Further, several fme books 
were given in memory of members by the Community Garden Club of Cohasset, 
the Amateur Gardeners of Cohasset, and the Cohasset Garden Club. 



-189 



Conclusion: 1994 was a good year for the library. The Trustees, staff 
and volunteers make a good team in making the Paul Pratt Memorial Library 
wonderfully useful and a source of pride for the entire Town. Moving into the 
electronic age is challenging and different, and it is commendable that several 
steps have already been taken with cooperation, patience and good will. The 
staff are terrific, and much appreciated by library users, volunteers and Trustees. 

The job of Chief Librarian has grown to encompass supervisor of mainte- 
nance projects, including writing specifications, as well as expert-in-residence 
regarding the Old Colony Library Network and the Massachusetts Library and 
Information Network, funded in 1994 by the Legislature, and their impacts on 
and opportunities for Cohasset. Cohasset is very fortunate that its Chief 
Librarian, Richard Hayes, is unusually competent, not only as a librarian, but in 
these additional roles, which are very important at the present time. 

While the Trustees are very proud of the Paul Pratt Memorial Library, they 
are, in fact, representing Cohasset voters. As always, they would really appreciate 
citizen input in order to enhance any aspect of the library's operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sheila S. Evans, Chairman 
Library Trustees 



RECREATION COMMISSION 

It gives us great pleasure to report to all residents the activities of their 
Recreation C omm ission for the year J. 994^ 

During the year approximately 6,800 individuals of all ages participated in 
a variety of structured programs, activities and events. While budget restrictions 
persist, continuing use of the Revolving Account Fund for 100% self-supporting 
programs has been possible. Currently, all but two programs are Revolving 
Account Fund sponsored, causing no impact upon taxpayers. The Recreation 
Commission adopted an Administrative Service Fee charge for all RAF programs 
during Fiscal Year 1993, and this financial system continues to reimburse tax- 
payers for the costs and time encumbrances of RAF program operations. That is, 
ASF revenues are deposited into the General Fund of the Town. Collectively, it 
is the revenue produced via administrative service fees, together with budget 
sponsored programs and beach parking sticker sales, that reimburses taxpayers 
for the budget of the Recreation Commission. Only revenue on deposit in the 
General Fund can be considered recapitalization revenue, while RAF revenue 
supports the cost associated with program operations. 

During Fiscal Year 1994, the Recreation Commission produced $69,519.50 
for the General Fund. Concurrently, $84,420.45 was transacted by way of 
Revolving Account Funds for 100% self-supporting programs through fees 
charged participants for a variety of services. Approximately $22,000.00 was 
transacted through other self-supporting financial systems during Fiscal Year 



190- 



1994, manifesting a collective $179,089.95 in recreational services to residents 
from the $70,535.00 budget of the Commission. These figures do not include 
the thousands of man hours that are annually donated by hundreds of residents 
in support of a variety of program operations. 

Municipal recreation is for the benefit of all residents, and we continue to 
direct our efforts toward assurance of equal access and opportunity to the entire 
community. To this end, a specific and calculated portion of revenue was not 
collected this year from residents who were temporarily unable to pay for ser- 
vices. In many instances, time was volunteered in lieu of fees, benefiting both 
the department and the participants of the program. 

Programming represents only one of the responsibilities, duties, and func- 
tions prescribed and conferred upon the Recreation Commission by both Massa- 
chusetts General Laws and By-Laws of the Town. Continuing efforts are focused 
upon upgrading and renovating existing outdoor recreational facilities under the 
jurisdiction of the Commission. 

It continues to be through a blending of private and public resources and 
funding that most facilities have been upgraded and/or renovated. Numerous 
Town departments and officials have continued to support our efforts in this 
area, for which we remain enormously grateful. 

The seven member, elected board of Recreation Commissioners volunteer 
their services to the Town and department, meeting regularly, (on the third 
Tuesday of each month) in order to discuss a wide spectrum of topics relative to 
the leisure needs and pursuits of all residents. Further, the Commissioners estab- 
lish policy and provide departmental direction, support and assistance. Each 
meeting is publicly posted and residents are cordially invited to attend. Essential 
to our proper function, and absolutely vital toward success, is the ability to 
remain responsive and dynamic to changing community needs. We consider your 
input and feedback our most important source of guidance. 

The Recreation Commission expresses gratitude to the many individuals, 
civic and business organizations, school and sports groups, Town boards, com- 
mittees and departments lending their support and assistance in our efforts to 
best serve the recreational and leisure needs of residents of all ages. While too 
numerous to mention each name, none are forgotten, and all are sincerely 
appreciated and thanked.

SOCIAL SERVICE LEAGUE 
of Cohasset, Inc. 

The Social Service League, under contract with the Board of Health, offers 
Public Health Nursing services to Town residents. These services include: monthly 
Keep Well Clinics, health promotion and education programs, and investigation 
of communicable disease reports. The League office at 16 Highland Avenue is 
open for diabetic and hypertension screenings, tuberculin testing, and general 
health consultations. The walk-in office hours are Monday, Wednesday and 
Friday from 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. and 12:30 P.M. to 1:30 P.M. 

Our monthly Keep Well Clinics are held at the Senior Luncheons and 
Harborview senior citizens' housing. These clinics are open to all Town residents. 

Other activities this year included: our Annual Health Fair, and mammog- 
raphy screening in June, four Flu Clinics in November, and participation in 
the statewide "Prevention Day" on May 5, which coincided with our Annual 
Health Fair. 

Community education programs included: a presentation by Stanley 
Alexander, Ph.D., of Quincy Hospital on clinical depression, a C.E.U. program 
on Domestic Violence held at the Ramada Inn in Rockland, and discussions 
with Mike Gill, health coordinator of Cohasset Schools, to plan a violence pre- 
vention program at the high school during the coming school year. 

We continue to cooperate with the Council on Aging, the Cohasset Schools, 
area physicians, and other health and social agencies to provide and promote 
optimum health care for our community. We are very grateful to all volunteers 
and community groups who have helped us in the past year.

EDUCATION 

SCHOOL COMMITTEE AND SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

It is with great pleasure that we submit the Fiscal Year 1994 Annual 
Report for the Cohasset Public Schools. 

During this past year the Education Reform Act of 1993 began to influ- 
ence the direction of education on both the state and local levels. Of particular 
significance was the establishment of new regulations governing the length of the 
student school day and development of a Common Core of Learning. 

The Education Reform Act had directed the Board of Education to 
develop a plan "to extend the time during which students attend school to 
reflect prevailing norms in advanced industrial countries and to address the 
educational needs of children in the Commonwealth." Beginning in September 
of 1995, each school district must certify that it has scheduled a minimum of 
990 hours of structured learning time at the secondary level and 900 instruc- 
tional hours at the elementary level. Standard Learning Time is time during 
which students are engaged in regularly scheduled instruction, learning activ- 
ities or learning assessment within the curriculum for study of the core academic 
subjects which include mathematics, science and technology, history and social 
sciences, English, foreign languages, and the fine arts. In addition, subjects 
focused on helping students acquire the other knowledge and skills described in 
the Common Core of Learning are considered as a component of structured 
learning. Lunch, time passing between classes, homeroom, recess, non-directed 
study periods, and school service do not count toward meeting the required 
minimum. These regulations may require the lengthening of the school day or 
year and possibly the addition of new staff to provide additional academic 
offerings. 

So far communities such as Cohasset have not received a significant infu- 
sion of state money to assist in the implementation of the Education Reform 
Act. As a result, increasing dependence upon the local real estate tax will occur 
resulting in the continuing need to schedule override elections to meet the fiscal 
requirement of education reform. We must make this fact known to our law- 
makers and hope that consideration for more affluent communities will be 
forthcoming. 

Another provision of the Education Reform Act provided for early retire- 
ment programs for long term school employees. This program allowed individuals 
with twenty or more years of service in education to receive an additional credit 
for five years' service to allow a higher yearly retirement allowance. Within our 
system two veteran staff members took advantage of this program. Deer Hill 
Principal, Kenneth Ekberg, and Junior/Senior High School teacher, Edward 
McDermott, both retired from the system in August. I would like to express the 
appreciation of our community to these two dedicated educators and our appre- 
ciation to John Leary, Director of Student Services, and Deer Hill teacher, 
Dennis Kuntz, who also retired during the past year. Together, these four 
individuals devoted nearly 130 years to the education of young people. 



- 193 



We would also like at this time to express our appreciation to all of the 
members of the Track and Field Study and Building Committees. Due to the 
tremendous efforts expended by these committees the dream of new athletic 
field facilities became a reality. The 1994 Town Meeting approved an article for 
the construction of a field including a track facility on land adjacent to Milliken 
Field and to make repairs to Milliken Field. Work has already begun on this 
project, and when completed, the Town will enjoy additional athletic and 
recreational faciHties. 

During the past year the School Committee continued its practice of estab-, 
lishing annual goals for the system. For the coming year the goals are : 



Primary Goal 

To increase the breadth and depth of the preparation 

provided to all Cohasset Students 

A. Facilities - To ensure that appropriate faciHties are both available 
and properly utilized to support enhanced student preparation 

1 . Conduct a space study to determine if adequate physical facilities 
are available to our students. This study will present options 
which will: 

a. identify both short and long term space needs 

b. propose remedies to the present programmatic deficiencies 
present, particularly at the elementary level 

c. identify alternative proposals to space needs 

2. Submit faciHties requests to the School Committee, Capital Bud- 
get Committee, and to the Annual Town Meeting. 

B. Professional Development -To support professional development 
activites which contribute to both individual and system-wide instruc- 
tional excellence 

1 . Establish an individual professional development plan for all 
certified staff. The plan wiU be developed by the immediate 
supervisor of each individual staff member in cooperation with 
the Superintendent of Schools. 

2. Evaluate the effectiveness of the professional development inser- 
vice program, meeting the recertification requirements of the 
Education Reform Act. 

3. Review the results of the implementation of the teacher evalua- 
tion system, including its effectiveness in identifying professional 
development goals, and recommend changes to the system as 
appropriate. 

C. Curriculum - To improve the breadth, depth and efficiency of the 
system's curriculum 

1 . Conduct a review of the Social Studies curriculum, grades 7-12. 

2. Improve the curriculum aHgnment between the Joseph Osgood 
School and the Deer Hill School in the area of Reading/Language 
Arts. 



- 194 



3. Develop a proposal to introduce a formal community service pro-

We wish to express our appreciation to the Cohasset Education Founda- 
tion, the Parent School Organization, the Arts Boosters, the Athletic Boosters, 
the Cultural Diversity Committee, the Health Advisory Committee, the School 
Councils, and the School Facilities Committee. These organizations contribute 
greatly to the quality of the overall education program within our Town. 

Also in 1994 the Cohasset schools were again informed by School Match, 
the nation's largest school selection consulting firm, that we were the recipient 
of the annual "What Parents Want" award. Only a small percentage of the 
nation's schools qualify for this award, and Cohasset also received this honor in 
1993. 

We thank all who continue to support our school system. Active commu- 
nity involvement helps to ensure quality education within our schools. 

Respectfully submitted, 

COHASSET SCHOOL COMMITTEE

SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL VOCATIONAL 
TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL 

You Have Built It, and They Are Coming! 

There has been perhaps no calendar year since that of South Shore's initial 
opening in 1962 that has proven as significant in the history of the regional 
school as 1994. Continued enrollment growth, commitment to quality and 
diversity of both technical and academic programs, and facility improvements, 
highlighted by the opening of our building addition in January, have put South 
Shore into the forefront as a regional educational resource to both students and 
the community. 

The current enrollment of 505 represents the greatest number of students 
at the school in several years, an approximately thirty percent growth in the past 
three years alone. This includes three students from Cohasset as of October 1 , 
1994. These students participate in many of the fourteen diverse technical pro- 
grams offered at the school, in a full array of academics courses and extracurricu- 
lar activities, and in a concrete plan aimed at preparing them for rewarding 
careers and a lifetime of learning. 

Many graduates in last year's class have entered the workforce in their 
field of preparation, continued with post-secondary education, and joined the 
military and its educational opportunity. All are welcome to take advantage of 
Vo-Tech's life-time placement and career services. 

The creation of School Councils in schools throughout the Commonwealth, 
and particularly at South Shore, has brought a fresh and sometimes different 
perspective to the decision making and planning processes; In 1994, our Council 
began to focus on four major initiatives: 

1. Increased Student Activities 

2. The School Lunch Program 

3. Parental Involvement 

4. Facility Improvements 

Together with recommendations made in the Report of the Evaluation 
Committee by the visiting team of representatives from the New England Asso- 
ciation of Schools and Colleges (N.E.A.S.C), the Council's Improvement Plan 
has assisted in the planning and completion of several improvement projects and 
initiatives aimed at improving the overall environment and offerings at the 
school. Of the many recent "firsts", a football team of South Shore Vikings 
took the field for the first time in the school's history. After many years without 
such a group, an active Parents' Association has breathed supportive air, and in 
November conducted a very successful 1st Annual Holiday Crafts Fair and Auc- 
tion. Proceeds are being targeted for student activities, which are growing in 
number and in relevance to the development of the total student. 

On the academic and technical front, the Honors and Tech Prep (College 
Articulation) programs are expanding and flourishing. In response to job market, 
employment and regional demand, the creation of our new Health Careers 
Technology program has been met with widespread approval, with school- 
industry partnerships and internship opportunities being developed. The school's 
Continuing Education Programs continue to gain in popularity and in offering 
creative and practical opportunities for area adult learners.

South Shore historically has been extremely conscious of its commitment 
to the communities and to community services. Repair work, construction, 
consultative services, our Annual Senior Citizen dinner, collections for local 
Food Banks and volunteer agencies, and affiliations with numerous civic and 
municipal groups benefit not only the community, but assist in developing ideals 
of teamwork and service among students. Our goal is to maintain and, when 
possible, expand upon this outreach by both staff and student body. We view 
this component as critical to our mission of comprehensive education. 

An open invitation to visit and experience students at work in the Culinary 
Arts restaurant and Cosmetology Salon is extended to all citizens of the district. 
Call the school for hours of operation and the availability of appointments and 
reservations. 

In closing this report, I join with Superintendent James Hager and his 
administration, the staff, students, parents, School Committee and advisors to 
the South Shore Regional School District in pledging to strive for continued suc- 
cess and partnership. The very real challenges to our communities, financial and 
otherwise, require the commitment to cooperation and education toward which 
South Shore is driven. Preparation for the future, its economic demands, as well 
as societal changes and pressures, require foresight and planning. We appreciate 
the support and encouragement of citizens from Cohasset and look forward with 
enthusiasm to future successes in our working together. Young people are the 
future of our community and they need our help in attaining marketable skills 
and values transferable for years to come. Bridging the transitions from school to 
work, and to a return on our investment, is critical. In the end, we all benefit, 
and the students and communities both are winners. 

Respectfully submitted, 

South Shore Regional School District Committee

Cohasset Representative
